Embedded Linux* has demonstrated value as an extremely versatile, cost-effective solution that powers everything from consumer electronics and networking devices to retail point-of-sale and industrial applications. That very breadth, however, creates a diversity of business needs that leads embedded solution developers to build customized Linux distributions to meet their specific requirements, and has resulted in a highly fragmented embedded Linux world.
The Yocto Project, a collaborative open-source project hosted by the Linux Foundation, offers a central hub of templates, tools, and methods that streamline custom Linux development and ease the effects of fragmentation in the embedded Linux market. Involvement by commercial and open-source ecosystem members, including silicon vendors, OS vendors, consultants, and embedded developers fosters innovation across architectures and device types. As a founding project member, Intel provides key contributions to the Yocto Project kernel, helps foster standards-compliant advances in the project as a whole, and ensures excellent performance and compatibility with Intel® architecture.

In The Architecture of Open Source Applications, the authors of four dozen open-source applications explain how their software is structured, and why. What are each program's major components? How do they interact? And what did their builders learn during their development? In answering these questions, the contributors to these books provide unique insights into how they think. Check out volume II, and the Yocto Project* chapter written by Elizabeth Flanagan of Intel's Open Source Technology Center.
